‘The Christmas table is a great place to go over the top,’ says
Dan Cooper, Christmas buyer at John Lewis & Partners. ‘To create a table that’s extra special, take time to consider your scheme, how you’d like it to look and the ambience you’re trying to create,’ he adds. How you decorate should be determined by your table’s requirements, such as how many courses you plan to serve and whether you’ll need space for extra cutlery. ‘For a busy Christmas table, scale back with a centrepiece that will leave the rest of the table relatively clear for tableware,’
Dan suggests. ‘This could be a beautiful wreath housing a few candles, or some posy vases simply clustered together.’
